Dear CobbleHut Family,

owwnialler Owner posted Thu at 18:24

With the end of the CobbleHut era, it is with great nostalgia and with both sadness and joy that I resign from my position as Owner. CobbleHut was much, much more than a Minecraft server -- it was, and is, a family: a community. I am going to miss hanging out with each and every one of you on CH, but I know that this is not the end of this family. It is a new Minecraft beginning for many of you, and for me, while I will not be participating as staff or otherwise on the new main server, I know that the friendships we have made together will continue on and on. From the very first day I joined, I knew there was something that made CH very different and very special. I quickly found that it was every single one of you -- each staff member and every single one of our players. We all came from unique backgrounds, beliefs, countries, and we all brought different talents and knowledge and personalities into the world we created and improved. This is what made CobbleHut so special, and our family, so wonderful. 

As many of you know, when I joined CobbleHut I was struggling with severe depression, each of you helped me to learn each day and to climb out of my depression and find greater confidence and happiness in what I believe in, who I am, and who I want to be. For this, there are no amount of words that can embody how thankful I am to have been and to be in this family; to all of you: thank you, I am eternally grateful. I wish each of you nothing less than what I have gained from my experience with CobbleHut: I wish you all endless friendships, improved self-confidence, a feeling of belonging, continuous learning, and, of course, great happiness in the future. I love you all greatly and hope we stay a family for many years to come. An endless thank you to Enfalas who allowed us to come together. An endless thank you to each of you who made CobbleHut CobbleHut. 

Love always,
El

EDIT:

P.S. This is not a goodbye letter, this is a best-wishes-to-each-of-you letter! I will most likely occasionally stop by and say "hai" and see how you are all doing -- I'd miss you guys way too much otherwise! Also, always feel free to send me an Enjin message or something, my offer to be there for you in difficult times or in extraordinarily happy times still remains; I'm here if you need me (or just want to talk)!

Upcoming Changes

godnroc Owner posted Dec 4, 14
Background Information:
So, many of you may know that for the last 2 years, or so, CobbleHut (Formerly Athanaxia) was hosted by our Dark Lord by the name of Enfalas. Chances are, if you spent any time on CH, it was being run by him. He did everything from keeping the server running to building many things on the server itself.

The Situation:
Recently, due to life becoming more complicated, Enfalas annouced that he will no longer be able to host CobbleHut. As we have always told people "Life comes first" and that is very true here. Sometime in the next few weeks, he will be powering down the server indefinitely.

The Solution:
Because we all love this server and it's doubtful that any of us would be able to find another server to replace it, I, Godnroc, have taken it upon myself to take over the hosting of CH as much as possible.

What Does it all Mean?!?
Hopefully, not much. Minimally, it'll mean an IP change. Worse case scenario is that several things break because I am no where near the IT-Guru Enfalas is. Also, assuming I can't come close enough to keep CH running, we will be down for an indefinite time. (But that is unlikely.)

If you have ANY questions, comments, concerns, feedback, suggestions, or wise words check out this thread:
http://cobblehut.com/forum/m/9716418/viewthread/17618450-upcoming-changes-new-hosting-discussion

Also, please comment below to let Enfalas know HOW THANKFUL YOU ARE FOR ALL HE HAS DONE! Seriously, show a little love for the dude, he worked super hard to make CH as amazing as it is.

Feedback and Court

godnroc Owner posted Oct 18, 14
Feedback
In order to ensure that everyone feels comfortable to express themselves without fear of judgment, we have now created a feedback forum. This forum is only viewable by Owners, and will be viewed by them alone.

If you ever feel like something is REALLY cool, let us know! We love to hear what people think about what we do. (It may even motivate us to work harder.)

Also, if something ever bothers you or makes you uncomfortable, please let us know as well. Since only Owners can read your posts, you can voice your concerns freely. You may also air concerns or comments about an Owner or another staff member if you feel the need!

I look forward to hearing what you have to say! Don't be shy, go ahead and tell me I'm a(n) [Insert insult here] if you think I am. =D

EDIT: Thank everyone who has given feedback so far! We've seen some really great feedback and comments from several users, so thank you everyone! I look forward to seeing even more!


Court
Court is the new idea we're implementing, where normal players can think of, discuss, and potentially implement changes into CH.

Check out the Court section for more information.
plw123 lol, "[Insert insult here]" nahh god your to awesome for anybody to do that!
ninjalady2 It has been used well.
punkrocks_rules I like this idea :3
Beginning October 10, 2014, introduce a friend, a buddy, an amigo, an ami(e), an acquaintance... a new player to CobbleHut and receive a special, amazing, wonderful, custom dyed armor set!

Offer applies to the first new player, beginning 10/10/14, that you introduce into the CobbleHut community! If you have recruited over four players in the past, you too are eligible for this special armor set! Please contact El for your prize!

Note: Please do not advertise on other servers to attract players, this is not respectful and not in good taste; we don't allow others to advertise their servers on CH, why would we advertise on other servers. Also, please do not use alternate accounts -- save the "tricking" for Halloween (and only friendly tricks!). Thank you for your consideration!

Have a lovely day!

Thank you,
El
ninjalady2 You're very welcome again. ...
owwnialler Owner Definitely more than 10... more like 18. And thank you so much again ...
ninjalady2 I need to be in a hall of fame for bringing at least.. what.. ten people on the server at once?
Hello everyone!

First off, I would like to thank Joshy Boy for airing his concern regarding the borderline between personal life and game life. On behalf of Staff, I would also like to offer my sincere apologies to any player who has had their game-play experience or personal well-being affected by this issue.

The facts are:
CobbleHut is a Minecraft server; it is a game!
Our players are real people with real emotions and personal lives.
The actions on CobbleHut and discussions in chat affect other people.

So long as we are playing and working with real people the border between personal life and game life will be challenged; the question is where do conversation and actions cross the border. 

The minute that a player's actions and discussions begin to negatively affect other player's emotional health and well-being is when that border has been crossed. Lately, there have been many conversations of an incredibly personal nature in General Chat -- these discussions include detailed and graphic talk of depression, situations concerning suicidal thoughts and actions, physical harm, and the like. These topics can be a severe trigger for other players and subsequently affect not only other players' game-play but also their emotional health and well-being. 

We as staff would highly appreciate conversations of this nature be kept in private messages or in another form of communication outside of the server.

Please know that we are in no way attempting to discourage or devalue our player's personal lives and situations! Human connection and an ability to be vulnerable is a truly beautiful thing, and discussing difficult situations and emotions can begin to remedy these situations. However, we cannot have this type of conversation in General Chat where there are players of all ages; it is not appropriate.

We truly thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation -- our top priority is our players' safety and well-being! This includes making efforts to ensure we do not cross the boundary between personal life and game life to maximize comfort and security for all players.

If you are one of the players who is currently in a difficult place, please know that you are not alone! Many players and staff are willing to and enjoy helping and talking with others concerning personal situations -- these players tend to make this fact very well known; if a player reaches out to you, the choice to take take them up on their offer in a private setting is entirely up to you! Please also consider keeping available resources open to you including the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. We wish you the absolute best! Remember "happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light" (Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban).

Once again, thank you for your time, understanding, and consideration.

Sincerely,
El, on behalf of Staff

TLDR Version:
  • CobbleHut is a Minecraft server; it is a game
  • Players are real people with real emotions
  • Our actions affect other people
  • So long as players are real people, the boundary between personal life and game life will be challenged
  • Discussions concerning topics of a highly personal and potentially triggering nature (depression, suicide, physical harm, abuse, etc.) are not appropriate in General Chat
  • These topics can affect not only other players' game-play but also their personal lives and well-being
  • We as staff would appreciate conversations of this nature be kept in private messages (/m [username] [message] or /r to reply) or in another form of communication outside of the server!
  • If you are a player in a difficult place, please refer to the last paragraph ("If you are one...") -- you are not alone and we care about your health and well-being!
  • We truly appreciate your time, understanding, and consideration!
  • Thank you!
